I made a med sized leg of lamb..and due to circumstances, I have lots leftover. It is med rare. Ideas on what to do with it, besides lamb stew?

  1. You can make lamb curry, lamb fried rice, lamb kebab, lamb soup, and a whole lot more.

    1. Slice thin, make some tziki sauce and have yourself a few gyros.

        Yep, that'd be my choice. I'm just wondering how you could possibly have left over lamb. At my house every scrap of lamb would have disappeared, regardless of how much I prepared.

      2. thick slices of toasted sour dough, grain mustard, thinly sliced cucumber, thyme, mild cheddar, thinly sliced meat... cold lamb sandwiches in honor of mrs parrish, death and joe black.

        1. Lucky you! Some great ideas already. I would add lamb tagine and moussaka to the mix.

          1. Shepherd's pie...do you have any pan juices also left by any chance? That would help with the gravy but you can use good quality beef stock also if you can obtain some. I saw David Rosengarten make this years ago on his wonderful "Taste" show--he added a little red wine and fresh rosemary to the lamb/gravy mixture...topped with leftover mashed potatoes and baked it...I tried it and never looked back. He did not add any peas or corn to it and kept it very rustic.
